2. Read the first scene in Chapter 10 and think about the prose style. Why do you think the author writes this way? Compare the last scene of the same chapter. a. The number of words of one syllable; the length of sentences; the length of paragraphs; the adjectives used. What is different about the author’s purpose in these two scenes? 3. Although The Pillars of the Earth is fiction, it includes some real-life characters and incidents from history, such as King Stephen at the battle of Lincoln, and the murder of Thomas Becket. Why does the author mix fact and fiction like this? a. Are the factual scenes told from the point of view of the real-life characters, or the fictional ones? b.

5. Some readers have said that they look at medieval churches with new eyes after reading The Pillars of the Earth. Do you think you will do the same? a. In the book, churches are usually viewed through the eyes of a builder. How does this affect your understanding of the architecture?
6. Ken Follett has said: "I’m not a very spiritual person. I’m more interested in the material problems of building a cathedral." Is The Pillars of the Earth a spiritual book? a. What motivates Prior Philip? b. What does Tom say at the beginning of Chapter 5, when Philip asks him why he wants to be master builder? c. In Chapter 16, why does Philip ask Remigius to come back to the priory?
